After another short lived period of hot and humid conditions, basically Tuesday and yesterday, fresh Polar air will slowly invade behind a departing cold front. High pressure will take hold just in time for the end of the week and for the weekend, but an unsettled weather pattern is on the way.

The cold front will continue to slowly exit the southern New Jersey coast with a few lingering showers until noon. Otherwise, scattered cloud cover is expected with winds from the northwest at 5 to 15 mph. Dew points will slowly fall through the 60's this afternoon while temperatures rise into the lower to mid 80's. The air mass will feel less humid this afternoon as dew points continue to fall.

High pressure will be in complete control tonight with clearing skies towards morning. Winds will be from the northwest at 5 to 10 mph. Temperatures will fall into the mid to upper 50's in the valleys of northwestern New Jersey, otherwise upper 50's to lower 60's can be expected throughout New Jersey.

High pressure will remain in control for tomorrow on through Sunday afternoon with clear skies to scattered cloud cover. Winds will slowly back from the northwest to southwest at 5 to 10 mph. Temperatures tomorrow will rise into the lower to mid 80's for highs. On Saturday, temperatures will range from the upper 50's to lower 60's for lows and mid to upper 80's for highs. On Sunday, temperatures will range from the mid to upper 60's for lows and mid 80's for highs.

On Sunday night, clouds will increase with a threat for a few showers as a old front approaches the region. The cold front and associated low pressure system will move through New Jersey on Monday with scattered showers and a few isolated thunderstorms. Temperatures will range from the upper 60's to lower 70's for lows and mid to upper 80's for highs.

A series of weak disturbances will rotate through New Jersey on Tuesday and Wednesday with a threat for isolated to widely scattered showers. Otherwise, scattered cloud cover can be expected with generally cool weather conditions. Low temperatures will range from the upper 50's over northwestern New Jersey to the lower to mid 60's along the coast. High temperatures will range from the upper 70's to lower 80's throughout New Jersey.
